Just some poetry tapping into Kenneth Koch's "wishes, lies, and dreams" exercise



I want to win

   the Nobel Peace Prize,

   barnstorm in towns without Borders,


 end world


hunger while swimming

   the English Channel,

   and eat poached

   eggs on the shore  in Calais,


become president

  of an unpronounceable



  grow my own



sail around the world in a Sun-

  fish, flashing candy

  cane stripes under ribbons

  of ocean,


discover home.
